We departed for the South last week with my children to spend time with loved ones. My quirky and always vivacious family took us into their homes and made my monsieur and western kids feel at home.
My beautiful nieces, brothers, caring sister and matriarchal mother are so important to me. The older I become, I realize that family is everything.
Here is a photo of my mom’s dessert birthday party, where we baked a mousse cake, brownies and petits fours. She has a sweet tooth but she doesn’t bake much, so she appreciates our efforts. It makes me so happy to see how our baked goods put a smile on her face!
